This is Genevieve
Q1) Tell us a little about yourself!
I'm 28 years old living in Canberra. I have a little fur baby named Harvey and live with my fiancé, Josh. We are getting married next year and trying to juggle different businesses, so life is a little bit hectic at the moment haha.
Q2) Tell us about what you do, and why you do it!
I have an Instagram page called @thisisgenevieve_ which focuses on affordable style and being able to style pieces on a budget (yes, I absolutely love Kmart and Target!). I have always shopped this way and love being able to give fashion inspiration and advice to others who love doing the same. I love being able to show people that you don’t actually have to spend a fortune to look a million dollars.
Q3) What makes you feel courageous?
Doing things that you didn’t think you’d ever be able to do and completely surprising yourself in the process.
Q4) What is one thing you wish you could tell your 16-year-old self?
Don’t change yourself to fit in. When I was 16 I would often think I needed to dress a certain way or look a certain way to be accepted at school (I went to a private girls school). Looking back it wasn’t ‘me’ at all – I would still be shopping at Kmart or Target on the weekends whilst trying to convince my parents to buy me the latest iPhone or piece of clothing. Looking back now, I wish I just enjoyed those younger years and didn’t worry about what others thought of me.
Q5) What is one piece of advice you can give a fellow lady who might be lacking courage?
If it scares you, it’s probably a good indication you should try it. Take the risk and you’ll soon realise you should have done it sooner.
